Being a mom is a lot of hard work. We are always working overtime to get everything done at once. While being a parent is a balancing act, being a mom is even harder. We are the ones who run the ship to make sure it sails. And, sometimes, we get things so very wrong. We look away for one moment and all hell is breaking loose.

This mom who accidentally washed her child's social security card.

There are some things in life that we need to keep on us at all times and use forever, like our birth certificates or our social security cards. But, when we mess up—we mess up real bad. This mom accidentally washed her child's social security card and the number is nowhere to be read or found.

This mom who made some questionable cookies for her kid's bake sale.

For the Christmas bake sale, all parents have to go above and beyond to make something to sell (or else the other parents will judge us). This mom made some questionable-looking cookies for her child's bake sale and they look like...boobs.

Never let your kids do the tinfoil.

This mom let her daughter do the tin foil for dinner and boy, was that a mistake. Now, the entire roll is done for. Little slivers of aluminum foil are not going to help us line any pan—no way.

This mom's bad car-phone mistake.

This mom was in the car with her two children when her car began to read a text message she got out loud on the car play. It was an inappropriate spam text message about inappropriate things. Yikes.

Pot, ruined.

There's nothing like trying to cook and also manage a household of kids at the same time. Poor mom over here left her sauce cooking and totally burned her pot. It was pretty damn bad, too. So much, the pot was ruined.

This mom who burnt the "sticker" on the new iron.

New irons come with stickers on the bottom and it's super important to take them off before you begin heating the iron up to use. This mom, unfortunately, forgot to take it off and burnt the sticker on for good.

This doesn't belong in her son's lunch!

Kids have enough energy as it is, they don't need coffee. But, this mom must need some because she accidentally packed it in her son's lunchbox and sent him off to school with it. Oopsy!

Never trust your kids to make a snack for themselves.

This mom let her child make a snack for themself and thought it was going to go well. Turns out, the crackers were within reach, however, so were the sour gummy bears. That is definitely not healthy.

Someone is sleep-cooking.

Tacos are pretty easy to make because the seasoning comes in a packet and you just pour it right onto the meat. Unless, of course, you accidentally grab the cupcake sprinkles instead of the seasoning and now you have sweet tacos.

That's definitely not a sword.

Her son had requested that she make a pancake that was in the shape of a sword, but instead, she made one that looked like it belonged at a bachelorette party for women. That's no sword.

Always check the car roof.

If you are balancing all of your kids and your stuff, check the roof of the car before you drive off. This mom accidentally left her child's tablet on top of the car and drove away. Cracked screens are not fun.

Note to self: ice cream cakes go in the freezer.

Remembering to grab your child's birthday cake is a hard task but don't forget where to store it. This mom accidentally put the ice cream cake in the fridge, not the freezer, and it melted beyond belief.

Don't let your kids do their own bath bubbles.

This little cutie requested to do their own bath bubbles for bathtime, and somehow, mom thought it was a great idea. Turns out, their entire bathroom is now filled with bubbles and that's one big mess to clean up.

Windy + sunscreen = problems!

Spray-on sunscreen seems pretty easy to use and convenient for parents, but make sure it's not windy when you apply it. The wind will pick up the sunscreen and drag it far beyond the body—and your kids will end up with splotchy sunburns.

Never leave your kids with markers unattended.

No matter how much you trust your kids, leaving them with markers or pens unattended will always result in disaster. This mom left her son with Sharpie markers near their piano and un-oh.
